The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the new global development framework set to succeed the Millennium Development Goals. They will be formally unveiled at the UN in September this year, when the MDGs expire. A robust consultative process preceded the articulation of these goals. One fundamental difference between the SDGs and the MDGs, is that the former is universal, while the latter covered developing countries.
This interactive guide HERE by The Guardian’s Global Development section provides a clear and straightforward elaboration of the 17 SDGs and their indicators.
There’s also an overview of the processes, an analysis of the differences between the SDGs and MDGs, how the goals will be funded etc HERE.
